Middlebury, Ind.-based LOOK Trailers recently announced plans to open an additional manufacturing facility in McGregor, Texas, with production scheduled to begin in June of 2018.
According to a press release, the 80,000-square-foot production facility will be the sixth manufacturing location for LOOK Trailers, which also has plants in Indiana, Georgia, Utah, Arizona and Pennsylvania. LOOK Trailers will manufacture LOOK, Pace American and Cargo Express enclosed cargo trailers with two production lines at the Texas facility, which will employ 50-100 people by December of 2019.
The Texas location will be convenient for many dealers in the South Central region of the United States and will continue LOOK’s industry-leading growth.
Matt Arnold, founder and president of LOOK Trailers, said, “I am excited with the level of interest in the LOOK brands across the state of Texas. We have dealers committed to our product already; we are booking orders for this facility and we have begun taking job applications to start manufacturing in May. Dealers are looking for a reliable national manufacturer with a reputation for outstanding customer service. I can’t wait to deliver our first trailers in June.”
A full line of trailers will be built at the new location, ranging from entry-level enclosed cargo, motorcycle, contractor, ATV and auto trailers to custom-built 53-foot gooseneck race trailers. Arnold noted that LOOK Trailers is investing significant capital and making major improvements to the facility with new fencing, a paint booth, and upgrading lights and power to the building.
